BOUNTY Book Release!
BOUNTY: Lopez Island Farmers, Food, and Community will be released at an event at Lopez Center for Community and the Arts on Friday, Oct. 21, 5-7 PM.
Please join the CELEBRATION to honor our farmers! The BOUNTY book completes this 3 year project forever preserving the legacy of local food and farming. The beautiful BOUNTY Photo Exhibit will be on view and copies of the book will be on sale. The book will also be available for purchase at the LCLT Annual Harvest Dinner the following evening, Oct. 22 and at the Lopez Bookshop. The photographers, the writer, and chef will be available to sign the book.
This 124-page book combines photographs, profiles, and recipes to present an intimate, behind-the-scenes view of what it takes to bring food from earth to table on Lopez Island. Stunning photographs by Steve Horn, Summer Moon Scriver, and Robert S. Harrison fill its pages along with a feast of profiles written by Iris Graville and 28 scrumptious recipes created by Chef Kim Bast.
Advance praise comes from Ana Maria Spagna, author of Potluck: Community on the Edge of Wilderness: “These lively profiles show us the good people of Lopez Island building soil, fixing fences, tending herbs, baking bread, harvesting shellfish, staking vines, training apprentices, storing seeds, and staying up late reading by flashlight in the sheep barn, while the photos and recipes gorgeously display the fruits – and vegetables and meats and desserts – of all that labor. Like growing, preparing, and serving good food, this book is a work of beauty and generosity.”
Donations and profits from book sales will be donated to the Lopez School L.I.F.E. School Garden where Lopez kids grow and eat nutritious, fresh food.
